Teaching Mental Strategies Years 5 & 6 by Mike Askew, Sheila Ebutt, Fran Mosley

This book contains 24 number challenges. Children tackle them using strategies they know. If those strategies don't crack the problem, they learn new ones that fit, or do the job faster or more efficiently. The lessons in this book are genuinely interactive. Children develop and explain their ideas, growing in confidence as they begin to think for themselves.
